Octopus is an ensemble that performs in varying line-ups of 24 to 80 singers in the form of the Octopus Kamerkoor and the Octopus Symfonisch Koor.
Octopus has been working on a project basis since its foundation by conductor Bart Van Reyn, and managed to conquer a privileged position in Flanders in a short time. The ensemble consists of a mix of passionate semi-professional and professional singers, and offers singing students a bridge to a professional career.
Their repertoire ranges from late baroque to the 21st century. In addition to many a cappella programs, they also sing oratorios and symphonic choral works from Bach to MacMillan. They have collaborated with orchestras such as Brussels Philharmonic, Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra, Flanders Symphony Orchestra, Flanders Opera Orchestra, Belgian National Orchestra, Orchester Philharmonique Royal de Liège, Musica Viva Moscow, Bochumer Symphoniker and baroque orchestras B'Rock and Le Concert d'Anvers.
